Those are nice. I wish I could find exactly that for a 78 cb750f. Not easy.

Hi,
Sorry for delayed response. I was away and it took some serious effort to return home about two weeks ago. Sent you photos of fork ears by e mail, if you still need.
Cheers and stay safe

Happen to know if these might fit on an 81 GL1100?
If not, does anyone know of ones that might?
Preferably with the spots for mounting turn signals.
Thanks in advance!

These do not fit a 1981 Gl1100. different fork size and the turn signal mounts for an 81 are completely different. When trying to find parts you can always use the fiche supplied by oem parts suppliers like partzilla , honda parts nation etc. Get used to cross checking the parts numbers to avoid confusion.

1000 fork ears fit over the 1100 fork with 1/8" id to spare. In my friends case with 11 forks on his 76, he removed the btm 1000 signal stem section having a vetter fairing on his. With a little modification , I bet one could retain the stem section no problem.

The reason I ask is because i can't find any sets on eBay of 1100 fork ears with the turn signal mount tabs intact. Only lefts.
I'd love to go for the stock look but if the 1000 fork ears can fit with the turn signal mount retained, there are a lot more aftermarket turn signals that would fit that hole vs the mounting tabs.
Why are so many of the mounting tabs cut off? :(

The tabs get cut off for clearance when installing a Vetter fairing.

That's a bummer! I would have gone to aftermarket clamp on ears and left the stock ones unmolested... If anyone finds some they'd like to sell let me know!
Thanks in advance!

Maybe if I find one intact I could measure, have a new tab made and welded onto one thats been cut off...
I work at a metal Fab shop so this is definitely do-able... Not preferred but doable.
